DEFRA works closely with the food industry to deal with disruption to the food supply should the need arise, and meets the sector regularly to promote business continuity management. The sector has robust and resilient business continuity plans to deal with any threat of disruption. These plans have been tested in cross-Government exercises, in which the food industry participated. DEFRA also participates in the cross-Government programme of work to prepare for emergencies. Further detail on this programme can be found on the UK Resilience website.
